“I am a cheerleader, and here’s why I take a knee”: A response from the James Logan football team

By Joshua Vasquez, Courier Sports Editor

Recently, NPR published an article on a fellow student, Sasha Armbrester. To the surprise of many, conservative news outlets Breitbart and The Daily Caller reprinted the article to a national audience, creating quite a stir of emotions.

The article itself spoke mostly in relation to the perceived racial injustices Armbrester felt weighing upon herself and our country. It also addressed the actions of sports athletes such as Colin Kaepernick and other NFL players: simply taking a knee.

It seemed that Armbrester felt agitated by the recurring events and decided to spread the national headline even more by taking a knee alongside fellow cheerleaders during James Logan’s Friday night Football games.

Armbrester wrote, “When Colin Kaepernick started taking a knee, a lot of people thought he was being unpatriotic. But for me and the other black cheerleaders on my team, we were inspired. We saw an opportunity to call attention to racial injustice. So we began taking a knee too.”

Movie Review: Justice League

By Demisha Simmons-Price, Arjot Pabla, and Jonnatan Sanchez, Courier Staff Writers

“Justice League,” directed by Zack Snyder, is an action/adventure film that was released on November 17, 2017.
According to Rotten Tomatoes, it holds an approval rating of only 40%.

Amit Kalra, a senior, said, “I loved the movie but I think it was mostly a copy of the Avengers. “

“Also, it mimicked the same thing. My favorite character was Barry Allen of course the ‘Flash’. It wasn’t really that exciting because it was really predictable and had the same plot as The Avengers but yes– I’d recommend people to go see it.”

Justice League will continue to leap over a number of DC extended movies. According to Rotten Tomatoes, it’s already placed second under the “Top Box Office” category with a total number of 16.6 million dollars under the movie “Coco”.

On Thursday November 30th, the Logan Leadership held its first ever fall festival at the basketball courts. We decided to go to the festival and check out all of the fun and amazing things that leadership had put together for the festival.

When arriving at around 4:45, we noticed that a few of the food trucks had already arrived and were serving food to people who also came early. There were a variety of food trucks ranging from a waffle truck, to a Mexican food truck. The prices for the trucks were reasonable and the food was prepared and served very fast. There was something for everyone at the festival.

By Sheris Mendiola and Catherine Nguyen, Courier Staff Writers

On November 18th and 19th 2017, the JLHS Band and Color guard won first place in prelims and finals in the Western Band Association championships.

After competing against bands both within Northern California and out-of-state, these students felt that winning the WBA championships was an amazing achievement because they stood out in “the most important and vital show out of the entire season,” said freshman color guard sabre, Jenelle Juco.

Band and Color Guard train hard around the clock, with weekday practices lasting 3 hours and weekend practices lasting 8 hours. “All the dedication and hard work we spend in practice definitely pays off at the end of the season,” said junior Nyah Belle Martinez.

The death of the free internet?

By Horace Assar and Princess Ganutan, Courier Staff Writers

If you’re a regular internet user (just about everyone), your future may be drastically different in just a few days. On December 14, the FCC will likely repeal the Net Neutrality laws that have ensured equal internet access for years.

Net Neutrality, simply put, allows everyone–regardless of income–to have the same web speeds on the same websites. Under these laws, telecom providers like AT&T and Comcast are prohibited from giving priority access (speeding up, slowing down, or blocking certain sites) to certain users who pay more.

The FCC regulates all our country’s telecommunications, including internet access and wireless spectrum. This government agency’s Net Neutrality policies have been on the edge ever since 2010, when a federal court struck down its open order that would have prohibited telecom companies from blocking internet traffic and designating users to slow/fast lanes.

Omar Mercedes with the official certificate of the leadership award.
